If you must clean any stains or markings, use only a soap that is as mild as you can possibly find, one that does not contain any alkaline. This type of soap should be an adequate cleaning aid and should not cause any harm to your furniture. To be safe however, you may want to try it out first on a part of the furniture that is not commonly seen, such as the interior of a drawer or underneath the table. 


Waxing or polishing finished surfaces can greatly benefit your wooden furniture, provided you use the proper type of polish. The non-alkaline soap will again come in handy if you have to remove some older polish that was previously applied before applying a new coat.
